The Singapore Sports Council (SSC), organiser of Sunday's Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore, has disqualified the runner-up of the full marathon Local Women category.
The runner - who had come in second place in a time of 3hr 26min - had been running using someone else's bib.
Josephine Wang had originally signed up for the run, an SSC statement said on Monday. But she did not compete in the race and passed her bib to another unnamed participant to run in her place.
